Write The First Customer Review

"Why not become fire?" Introducing readers to more than two dozen women mystics, Evelyn Mattern and Helen David Brancato suggest what such an unnerving question might mean. They open a path of beauty and abandon using two of the most powerful instruments possible: poetry and art. Whether it is Julian of Norwich or Teresa of Avila, or Dorothy Day, readers will not only learn about these remarkable women, but will be swept up in the calling that led them beyond ordinary life, beyond ordinary expectations.
